A northern Flemish in Seville

In 1563, from Flanders, more specifically Antwerp, a man in his twenties called Joris Hoefnagel came to Seville and Cadiz between other cities, with a desire to draw the populations that he was finding. His skill did that translation into paper of cities as Seville, Cadiz, Jerez de la Frontera... was surprising to everyone who saw them.

In 1572, in Cologne (Germany), the publisher Braun and the engraver Hogenberg transformed his meticulous drawings into engravings that were part of the most important world geographical atlas of all the times, the CIVITATES ORBIS TERRARUM. Thanks to the research, restoration and reissue conducted by the team of the engraving workshop of EL VIAJERO ALADO Art Gallery, today we can see and purchase these works, limited edition prints and originals as Hoefnagel's engravings were realized in their day.
